3 Energy Ball Recipes For That Mid-Day Boost

June 8, 2017

Find yourself reaching out for a sugar-laden, trans-fat filled snack? Give your mid-day munchies a healthy makeover with these easy-to-make energy balls!

Packed with protein, carbs, and fat (from nuts), energy balls are pretty much the perfect snack. Stored inside a covered container in the refrigerator, energy balls can keep for 4 – 5 days, which means you can make a batch on a Sunday and take your time to savour them.

And, once you see how exorbitantly priced energy balls are at health-food cafes, you’ll be super glad that you now know how to make your own.

 

Basic stuff you’ll always need:

  1. Medjool dates, pitted, chopped and soaked. They can be found in the fruit section of most supermarkets.
  2. Nuts such as almond or cashews
  3. A food processor. No need for a fancy, top-of-the-range type, a basic model will do.
